I’ve decided to resurrect my blog after months of neglect, and I thought this would be a fun way to kick start it since I’ve received a record number of comments about my husband’s antics on my Facebook page.
My husband is a typical guy. He loves to play sports, mostly golf these days, but avidly watches anything with a ball on television. His reading is limited to Sports Illustrated and anything published about golf. His clothes are so predictable they border on a uniform. Work clothes are always from one of two stores-Brooks Brothers or Johnston & Murphy, all of his suits are either charcoal grey or navy and all of his ties are striped. Casual clothes are always a collared golf shirt and khaki pants. Rarely does he wear jeans, and he would never be caught dead in flip flops.
However, he is incredibly open-minded when it comes to toiletries. I don’t know where the fascination began, but every time I take a peek into his side of the bathroom, I am always flabbergasted by what I find in there. Ointments, creams, gels, oils, all kinds of exotic and unheard of (at least to me) personal hygiene items lurk inside his medicine cabinet.
While he tends to change favorites from one month to the next, a few items have stood the test of time and are perennial favorites. With one exception, all of these products can be found at the drugstore or grocery store.
- Clean & Clear Advantage products-I think he owns almost everything they currently make. My husband has extremely oily skin, yet at the same time I rarely see a breakout on his face. He likes that these are easily found at any drugstore, all over the country.
- Shea Moisture African Black Soap Shaving Kit-he discovered this at Target while killing time waiting for me to get out of the cosmetics section. It works extremely well at getting a close shave while preventing razor burn and ingrown hairs. These days, it’s impossible to find in the stores but you can get it online.
- Sibu Sea Buckthorn Cleanse and Detox soap-this was a recommendation from Michele1218 and he went through two bars before moving on to another soap. They are quite inexpensive (under $6) and can be found in stores at Whole Foods and GNC. Unfortunately, he quickly used them up and found they didn’t last very long. Which leads me to…
- Grandpa’s Natural Soap-another find at Whole Foods, but I’m sure they can be found elsewhere and online. His favorite version is their Oatmeal bar. Hubby says it has the same results as the Sibu, but the bar lasts a lot longer.
- Bump Patrol-apparently another wonder product to fight ingrown hairs. As annoying as an ingrown hair can be on a lady’s bikini line, I just realized how awful that must be to have on your face! Anyway, this has been a favorite for awhile. It’s available at Target.
- Crest Pro-Health Complete mouth wash. Like I mentioned in the video, good dental health is directly connected to good heart health. This mouthwash was recommended by both our dentist and his cardiologist, so of course he ran out and got it. It comes in various flavors, but the purple one is his favorite.
